My daughter and I spent 4 nights with Grazia and Carlo in their wonderful hayloft - and now we have two new friends! There hospitality and enthusiasm for the area knows no bounds and they were always on hand to provide advice - and more importantly shower us with Tuscan hospitality including home cooked meals and fresh vegetables (best tomatoes I have ever tasted). The covered pool is a bonus as the slightly cooler September evenings were not a problem and meant that we could swim regardless of the outside temperature. Their house is also magnificent and worth a tour. Views from the terrace are spectacular. We did day trips to Sienna and Florence (latter by an easy train trip from Figline) and visited the Chianti wine region. Will be back!

Grazia and Carlo were wonderful hosts going out of their way to make us feel welcome. On the evening of our arrival we were provided with a beautiful home cooked traditional meal and spent time getting to know them. They were incredibly helpful in providing local knowledge about where to go and how to get there, trips to Firenze, Arezzo, Greve and Siena would not have been so successful without their help. The pool was an absolute godsend given the soaring temperatures and our concerns regarding it being too hot under glass were unfounded and our youngest son was very impressed with the pool lights after dark! The Hayloft provided a homely setting and although compact for 4/5 people provided all the space required given that we were able to spend a lot of time outside. The kitchen was fully equipped and I can’t think of anything that we required that was not provided, even down to, their own cold pressed olive oil from the trees surrounding the house. The property was well situated and trips to many of the cities and towns within Tuscany were within a couple of hours drive if that is what you want to do but if you like to chill out and enjoy the views over the valley below or walk in the hills, I would highly recommend it. My son was able to hire a bike in Lusatti Aldo in Figline at a very reasonable cost and if you like a challenging bike ride he would recommend it. I always say that I won’t go back to a place that I’ve visited on holiday but feel that this one may be the exception to the rule, we arrived as strangers but left having made some new friends. We had a wonderful holiday and Grazia and Carlo made it extra special - Grazie Millie!

Dear Tracy, I read your review and are very happy that your stay with us has been very positive, so much to recommend it to others. Charles and I were happy to have you as guests, because you are open and friendly, polite and kind. We have kept us company and together we spent a pleasant time. Thanks to you and your family for choosing the "barn". I hope one time you decide to come back again to stay together! Grazie MIlle!

Es difícil expresar lo.MARAVILLOSA que es la casa, la zona y sobretodo Grazia y Carlos. Siempre pendientes y consiguiendo que te sientas como en casa. La zona es estupenda para visitar lo más bonito de la Toscana pero a su vez es tranquilo para tomarse un descanso. La piscina es preciosa y muy cómoda. La casa tiene todo lo que se pueda necesitar y si algo falta, que es difícil, Grazia y Carlo correrán a buscarlo. Lo mejor de la casa los ANFITRIONES!!!! Es seguro que volveremos y la recomendamos a todo el mundo. Mí familia y yo nos hemos sentido como en casa. Qué nadie lo dude ! Hay que ir!

Cara Beatriz, ti risponderò in italiano, anch'io per esprimere al meglio il mio pensiero. Sono molto contenta che il soggiorno tuo e della tua famiglia nella nostra casa sia stato piacevole. Le vacanze sono un momento molto importante durante l'anno di lavoro e di studio, perciò Carlo ed io facciamo sempre il possibile, perché i nostri ospiti siano soddisfatti. Fra voi e noi si è creato un clima di intesa e di amicizia, come se ci conoscessimo da tanto tempo. Ci siamo capiti benissimo pur parlando lingue diverse, perché siete delle persone aperte e comunicative. I tuoi bambini sono molto simpatici ed affettuosi. Siete una bellissima famiglia ed è stato un vero piacere stare insieme a cena e a chiacchierare. Spero che la vostra vacanza ed il vostro viaggio prosegua felicemente e spero davvero di incontrarvi ancora. Buona vita, amici!

Ici, tout est exceptionnel: la maison, qui est grande, belle, agréable, calme et parfaitement équipée; la piscine couverte, qui est fabuleuse, avec une eau en permanence à 30 degrés, que l'on peut utiliser de jour comme de nuit. Idéale pour les enfants notamment; le jardin, qui permet de manger dehors, de profiter d'une vue incroyable sur la vallée et même, sous les arbres, de bénéficier de la fraîcheur; et surtout l'accueil. Grazia et sa famille sont des hôtes exquis, à la fois discrets et efficaces. De très bon cuisiniers également! Nous avons passé un weekend de rêve en leur compagnie et n'avons qu'une seule hâte: revenir le plus vite possible. Seul petit problème: nous étions si bien à profiter du lieu que nous n'avons pas suffisamment visité les alentours, qui sont pourtant magnifiques. Nous sommes des habitués d'Airbnb et c'est l'une des meilleures adresses, que nous recommandons vraiment très chaudement.

Vous connaissez un endroit idéal sur Terre ??? voici l'un d'entre eux. Nous sommes une famille de 4 personnes avec 2 enfants de 9 et 12 ans. Nous avons été merveilleusement bien accueilli par Grazia et son fils Alessio dans un anglais parfait et très compréhensible. Un très bon gâteau de Toscane avait été préparé par Grazia et nous attendait dans la maison, pour notre arrivée prévue à l'heure du goûter; les enfants (et pas qu'eux) ont adoré. Le logement correspond en tous points au descriptif et aux photos, voire même encore plus beau. L'équipement est parfait et de qualité (même s'il manque des moustiquaires aux fenêtres d'en haut à notre avis). Nous le recommandons les yeux fermés, vous ne serez pas déçus. Grazia et Carlo (son époux) nous ont fait quotidiennement des attentions : de leurs bons légumes du jardin, des œufs, de leur délicieuse huile d'olive maison, du vin, du "horse cheese" et suite à une discussion, Grazia a même cuisiné des courgettes à la façon toscane (qui m'a réconcilié avec ce légume). Mais pas d'inquiétude, nos hôtes sont aussi présents que discrets. La maison est calme, sur les hauteurs de Castelfranco di Sopra, avec une vue époustouflante. Nous avons passé du temps sur la balancelle à l'admirer, à toutes les heures de la journée. Au départ, nous étions retissant d'avoir une piscine couverte mais il s'est avéré que ce fut un gros point positif. Pas de contraintes horaires dues à la température (eau à 30°c) et nous avons apprécié le contre courant et les lumières qui changent de couleurs à la tombée de la nuit... un seul mot OUAH !!! Nous avons visité Florence (en train), Sienne (1h en voiture), San Giminiano (1h20 en voiture) et le Chianti. Nous étions tellement bien dans ce logement que nous raccourcissions nos excursions. Nous remercions Grazia et Carlo pour leur gentillesse et toutes les attentions qu'ils ont eu envers nous. Grazie Mille, vous avez rendu notre voyage encore plus inoubliable !!!

Nous avons passé un magnifique séjour au Grace's Hayloft. Malgré l’horaire tardif de notre arrivée, Grazia est venue nous chercher au centre du village. La maison, située à fleur de montagne, offre une vue sublime sur la village. Elle convient parfaitement à une famille avec deux enfants comme la nôtre et est très bien équipée. Sa localisation permet de visiter en voiture, les principaux sites de la Toscane et de l’Ombria, Florence, Sienne, San Giminano, Assisi, Arezzo, Orvieto.... Après des journées de visites, la piscine dont la temperature était toujours agréable est la bienvenue pour se prélasser. Merci à Grazia et Carlo pour leur très bel accueil, leurs innombrables conseils sur les visites, la région, les spécialités Toscanes et Italiennes vins, charcuteries, pasta, fruits..... Mais également merci pour les soirées conviviales que nous avons pu partager avec Grazia et Carlo, d’excellents hôtes et ce aussi avec nos filles ! Grazie mille.
